    Nostalgia buffs and those who long for the glory days of old Hollywood will have their prayers answered with Cafe Society. Still in his element, Woody Allen proves that no be does it better with this sharp and slick tribute to the golden years of To sell own. Jump on the bandwagon by getting the newly released DVD to see what all the fuss is About.

    cannes-cafe-societyTired of science fiction soap operas or would be James Bond extravaganzas. thenSet sail for the 1930s as we see how a nerdy Brooklyn boy heads west to seek fame and fortune – to land a job I. Sunny Los Angeles. Hollywood to be precise.

    Give it up to Jesse Eisenberg for bearing his neurotic sole a la Woody. First stop on his trip is to see his uncle, a dynamo of a power agent in the Swifty Lazar mould.  In hopes of getting a job it’s up to his uncle, played deliciously by Steve Carrell, to deal with the young lad. Like a fish out of water or a deer caught in the headlights this nebbish loves the lifestyle of the rich and famous – until his life is thrown for a Loop by, what else, a girl.

    Twilight darling Kristen Stewart has her own share of man problems as the romantic dalliances become just a touch overpowering. Woody Allen wrote and directs this movie and it’s a who,e lot of fun. If you like witty dialogue, families in crises and a fond look at Judaism come unglued with hysterical stereotypes played for laughs in an enduring way the. Cafe Society will be just  what thee doctor ordered.
